In a new Universal Pictures animation ‘Minions’ world famous small yellow creatures are looking for a boss. They manage to find Scarlet Overkill, beautiful but ruthless villain. In Ukrainian movie houses she'll be dubbed by ‘Kvartal 95’ actress Elena Kravets.
Elena shares her impression of animation dubbing working process, ‘On the one hand, it isn't my first experience in this realm. On the other hand, I'd say it's exactly first in such format. I mean the main role voice. I've never had such enormous workload to do! Before Scarlet I've dubbed snail Burn in ‘Turbo’, which was a kind of tomboy with constant gum. And after that ‘Minions’ seemed such a surprise! A bright antagonist accompanied by my beloved yellow creatures. Won't hide it, I felt extremely nervous because of my seeming weakness and character disparity with Scarlet. But LeDoyen studio team and director Olga in particular helped me to get rid of all that nascent fears.’
On ‘Kvartal 95’ stage Elena has light and positive image, but here she appears in villain line. Scarlet Overkill is true fashion-monger with a passion for exclusive looks. It was asked whether Elena has the same addictions. ‘Of course! – answers she. – Scarlet from ‘Minions’ is merely amazing woman as she's imperious, purposeful, ruthless and femme. The thing is both we are girls at any rate. The only difference is I'm not so aggressive. Frankly, I don’t mind dressing in the latest fashion even though I'm not Queen of England ’
‘What am I waiting for? I want the audience in movie house to see and hear Scarlet Overkill, not Elena Kravets’, says actress.
Turns that restless yellow Minions have evolved from unicellular organisms to smart creatures. For the millennia they were servants of the most ambitious and cruel villains. A lack of a boss makes them sad, and searching for a new leader Minions go to an International misdoers conference. Here adventures start…
